Geniatech ATV195e 4K TV Stick Features Amlogic S905 Processor, 802.11ac WiFi

Orange Pi Development Boards

While there are way too many Amlogic S905 TV boxes to keep up, the number of TV sticks based on the processor is fairly low, and until today I had only heard about Guleek A8 a few months ago, but I can’t even see it for sale anywhere.Potential reason include people have released TV stick are not that convenient, or electronic design houses had issues to cool the thing down, as we’ve seen even some full-size TV boxes have issues with cooling. Nevertheless, Geniatech has designed their own Amlogic S905 TV stick called ATV195e with 1GB RAM, 8GB flash, and 802.11ac WiFi.

Amlogic_S905_TV_stickThe TV stick is available now at least to distributors, but pricing has not been disclosed. You could also visit Geniatech ATV195e product page, but some of the information is currently conflicting especially in the “Specifications” section. On a related but different news, Geniatech also opened a European office in Germany after purchasing EyeTV business from  Elgato.

cnxsoft, could you please review “Wintel Pro W8 Pro” which is an Intel z8300 based mini-PC:
http://www.geekbuying.com/item/Wintel-W8-PRO-Z8300-Windows-10-4K-MINI-PC-2G-32G-802-11b-g-n-LAN-Bluetooth4-0-HDMI-H-265-363000.html

I didn’t find any review about it (most probably because it’s a new device).

This is the cheapest z8300-based mini-PC: it costs 79$ (89$-10$ coupon). This is 50$ less, or 35% less, compared to Tronsmart Ara x5, for example, and the majority of the z8300 devices.

75$ devices are tax-free when sent to my country, but 140$ devices are not (so the total price difference would be much bigger). This is why I am so interested and enthusiast about this device.

It doesn’t have AC WiFi. But, I wonder whether the price difference is justified…

Soon I would buy a device, so I need to know whether there are issues with this device – such as poor WiFi reception, SoC heating problems, slow storage memory, electrical and general instability, and the general quality of the device – could it malfunction/stop working easily?

Thanks.

And what is the reputation of the “Wintel” brand, quality-wise? Does anyone here know, generally speaking?
